Panini already puts out photos of cards every time they come out with a new product. They put sneak peaks and so on... Don't think it would be a big deal to take a scam of every card. One person, one camera.......... lol
Yeah they don't have to bother putting in nice patch cards, they'll just let those scumbags do it for them ... then the cards still sell high and give them a better rep haha.


I like how you accidentally wrote the word 'scam' instead of 'scan' ... how fitting haha


But yeah, it really wouldn't be a big deal ... but it's a service they truly don't care about, because I'm sure it's been brought to their attention in the past.

So much for customer service, how about hobby-service!

I got rid of it to a friend who suckered me into purchasing the card for exact amount of what I paid for and he ended up trading someone at csa show in jersey and that person listed on ebay and I believe the auction was up to $10k+ but it ended up taken down like most MJ exquisite auctions lol.

Yeah it's a fake I believe he was trying to scam someone out since the sick (almost unreal) patch the card was replaced with. my buddy who took the card from me asked the grader at a show and they told him the marks on the card and from their knowledge card looked altered and not authentic.

Especially when they're members of a certain site.

I was banned for breaking a BGS jordan insert out of a BGS 8 case and selling it raw. Raw is essentially NM. There was zero damage, just a condition sensitive foil set. It was sold 'as-is' with high-res scans

I got lynched and told I need to include in my description that it was previously graded!

I added it to my description, although there was really no need to...and guess what, BANNED STILL!



Mods deliberated and ruled that it was grounds for banning.

Texas_legends is still there, along with a handful of other members who have proven to take part in shady business.


The bigger your collection and the more money you flaunt, the more valuable you are to a site full of 'elitists'

OMG, really???
That's messed up... Sorry to hear that

yes, paul is right, mate. kaine is very dodgy. i think he is still a member on hk and also bo. maybe paul can clarify. he goes by texas-legends or mjexquisite23. and sorry but i still don't believe that sketchy theft story of his. some dills here think just because he listed a bunch of cards on an excel sheet that that is proof the theft happened. a lot of ding bats in this hobby who will fall for any story they hear. sad

Remember all those sales of high end exquiaite MJ auto patches always selling for $15k to $20k and the same people running around talking about record prices being set? Well this guy was one of the buyers who won the auctions.

The record prices were set by bidding wars by 2 individuals, MJexquisite and wegotstock. With all this coming to light with the numerous non payment issues, you have to be skeptical now if you werent back then about certain cards selling for the prices they did.

Id also question the die hard supporters that leaned in and said they were true verfied sales to support the scheme as well.
